About The Artist
Devin Dawson is a country singer and songwriter with a keen ear for clever turns of phrase and a knack for splitting the difference between rootsy and contemporary. After lighting up social media with a mashup of Taylor Swift covers, Dawson inked a deal with Warner Bros. and released the hit single "All on Me," which peaked at number two on Billboard's Country Airplay charts and appeared on his 2018 debut album, Dark Horse. A native of Orangevale, California, Dawson spent his formative years soaking in the sounds of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Alan Jackson, Marvin Gaye, and Johnny Cash. In 2012, he packed his bags and headed to Nashville, where he became ensconced in the Music City songwriting machine, penning songs for other artists. After spending a few years honing his chops, he decided to strike out on his own, and enlisted the help of producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne). He subsequently signed with Warner Music Nashville and released his debut single, "All on Me," which reached the Top 20 on the Hot Country Songs chart. The track was included on his 2018 full-length debut, Dark Horse, which also included collaborations with songwriters Luke Laird, Josh Kerr, Seth Ennis, and others. The album cracked the Top 50 of the Billboard 200 and peaked at number five on the Top Country Albums chart. Two years later he topped the country airplay charts with the single "One Beer," and in 2021 he released the Pink Slip EP, which includes the hits "Range Rover" and "He Loved Her."
